(Washington, D.C., February 8, 2011) — What is the future of Egypt? The Lord has much to say about that actually, and Egypt plays an important role in End Times Bible prophecy. As part of our educational mission, TJF has produced and posted an 8 minute videoblog at www.joshuafund.net that looks at several key points of prophecy:
1) Matthew chapter 24, describing the rise of “lawlessness” in the last days before the return of Jesus Christ
2) Isaiah chapter 19, which describes a very difficult, violent and economically disastrous future for Egypt in the last days, and even worse leadership than it has had in the past. But there is also hope in Egypt’s future. The God of the Bible loves the people of Egypt. He is determined to get their attention and draw them into a personal relationship with Him through faith in the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Hebrew Prophet Isaiah speaks of this divine love for Egypt.
Please take some time to watch, to read Matthew 24 and Isaiah 19 on your own, and to share the video with others. Then please post your comments on our “Epicenter Team” page on Facebook.
Also, in a new column posted at http://www.joshuafund.net, my friend Tom Doyle — a pastor with a real heart and focus on the Church in the Muslim world — writes that “despite the non-stop stream of bad news from a nation falling apart at the seams, there is also good news in Egypt that isn’t getting reported by the mainstream media.” For one thing, “many ministries in that Biblical country are seeing God moving in very powerful ways in recent years. Egyptians are coming to faith in Christ, growing in their faith, pastors are being trained and encouraged, and the Church as a whole is growing.” Tom, who was just in Egypt last month, urges followers of Jesus Christ around the world to pray for the people of Egypt, and offers some practical suggestions.
Finally, we’ve posted links to several interviews I have done in recent days on the Egypt Crisis — with Glenn Beck, CBN, Janet Parshall, and Fox News. Also there are links to the latest headlines from Egypt and the epicenter. Just go http://flashtrafficblog.wordpress.com/. Thanks.
